Since 2008, the programme has reached 1 million learners, and many more through programme integration, in over 3000 schools nationwide.
StarSaver™ is a school-based programme for volunteers from banks and financial institutions to provide hour-long lessons to learners.
The StarSaver™ lesson plan was established with the Department of Basic Education, within the EMS learning area of the school curriculum.
Launched in 2008, StarSaver™, previously known as Teach Children To Save South Africa™ (TCTSSA™), was established as an answer to the call by National Treasury to advance financial wellness and capability of children.
Starsaver™ has become well recognised worldwide, as one of the developing best practices in financial literacy and in allowing partnerships in the otherwise competitive financial education space.
StarSaver™ is a school-based programme allowing volunteers from banks and financial institutions to provide hour-long lessons on savings to learners up to grade seven.
It is ‘Proudly South African’ accredited and aligned to the ethos: ‘Make Everyday a Mandela Day’.
The programme endeavours to employ different ways of improving the preservation of the savings message.
